No. No one in this thread has said that you can spend more than one fp on a roll. Everyone has all said that is a no-go.

An average HT 10 human can spend 1fp to increase one Dodge from 8 to 10.

What seems to be in debate is if you can have a Feverish Defense more than once a turn.

So if you dodge three times during your turn, can you spend your 1fp for Feverish for all three dodges that turn...or only for one of the dodges.

But

Uses 5 FP on extra effort to get +10 skill on attack.

Make Deceptive Attack with -10 skill to give -5 defense to target.

Any kind of those options to spend tons of FP for a single use of Extra Effort are both totally unrealistic and unbalanced

You may rule otherwise, of course. But don't be surprised if it breaks your game.

It's pretty common for games with EE to not use it with mooks. The whole point of EE, IMO, is to make PCs (and important NPCs) more badass with fatigue as a balancing factor. I've never run or played in a game where mooks used EE. Obviously, there are likely exceptions.
